Woodend-based health promotion charity Live4Life has secured a $871,163 federal government grant to expand its youth mental health and suicide prevention program interstate.

The funding comes from the National Suicide Prevention Leadership and Support Program.
“We are thrilled to have secured funding to pilot Live4Life in one interstate region in 2023, and to activate our first interstate partnership by 2024,” said CEO Bernard Galbally.
Live4Life is a youth mental health and suicide prevention initiative designed specifically for rural and regional communities. The evidence-based model builds both young people’s, and the local rural community’s capacity to recognise mental health concerns and seek and offer help.
Live4Life currently operates in nine Victorian communities including the Bass Coast, Baw Baw, Benalla, Central Goldfields, Glenelg, Macedon Ranges, Moira, South Gippsland and the Southern Grampians.
